Haunt Me
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Joe wakes up from a deep sleep to see his family leave in a removals van. Where they've gone, he has no idea. Erin moves house and instantly feels at home in her new room. Even if it appears she isn't the only one living in it. Bit by bit, Erin and Joe discover that they have somehow found a way across the ultimate divide - life and death. Bound by their backgrounds, a love of poetry and their growing feelings for each other, they are determined to find a way to be together.

Joe's brother, Olly, never cared much for poetry. He was always too busy being king of the school - but that all changed when Joe died. And when an encounter in the school corridor brings him face to face with Erin, he realises how different things really are - including the kind of girl he falls for.

Two brothers. Two choices. Will Erin's decision destroy her completely, or can she save herself before she is lost forever?

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Haunt Me “I think I’m falling in love with you.”

This was a YA paranormal story, about a girl who fell in love with a ghost.

Erin was an okay character and she did well to not freak out when she first met Joe. Joe was also an okay character, and I did feel quite sorry for him that he was stuck being a ghost in his old bedroom.

The storyline in this was about Erin moving into Joe’s old house, and finding that Joe was now a ghost and was haunting her room. We got a romance then between Erin and Joe, which later turned into a love triangle with Erin, Joe, and Joe’s brother Olly.

The ending to this was pretty good, and I didn’t expect Erin to jump to the solution she did. I was glad that things worked out okay in the end though.

6.5 out of 10
